We recently visited Queenstown and took the local bus to Arrowtown to have a look around. Such a pretty preserved old mining town. And you must walk down to the rivers edge, it's lovely.

Picturesque little town with views of surrounding mountains and a few nice little shops and cafes. The Chinese Settlement is interesting and informative.

Our visit to Arrowtown lasted an hour but it was the sweetest hour. This old mining village has it's own old world charm. It's still alive in the early 20th century. The small shops selling gold jewelry, the little roadside cafes, haberdasher shops, confectioners...all side...More

Beautiful little town full of character, lots of specialty shops to visit and spend money in. If you wish to get some supermarket food best stock up in Queenstown before you go, its rather expensive in Arrowtown.

There are 2 routes by Connectabus which departs from O'Connell's Shopping Centre. Both take around 30-35 minutes. 1 of them goes directly to Arrowtown while the other interchanges at Frankton hub.
